-Previously on The Next Step....
-Michelle was not supposed to fall to
-the ground like that.
-It looks like she passed out from
-exhaustion and dehydration.
-I'm sorry, Riley.
Got to go.
Amanda leaves just before we are about to go on stage?
-That's not like her.
-This tour is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The team just means more to me.
-I love you, Sloane.
-I love you too.
I've always loved LaTroy.
The only problem is he's still dating Amy.
I went on a trip.
-I got you something.
I'm not really in the mood for any souvenirs right now.
Not even one from Switzerland?
The boy's back, bro.
I knew it. I knew Alfie would come through for us.
That is what princely people do.
We just went from nine dancers to ten.
Alfie just gave us a real shot at this.
We can actually compete in regionals for real.
I'm so glad you stayed.
What's up, Pipes?
-You're my hero!
-You know that?
I'm not a hero. I'm trying to make things right.
Seeing Riley is hard.
But I'm putting my heartbreak aside to do what's right for the team.
-Don't worry about it.
I can't believe James did this. He's amazing.
It was tough keeping this secret from Riley but I didn't
want to worry her. Plus seeing the look on her face right now.
It's totally worth it.
I'm so sorry for abandoning you guys.
I realised, or I had some help
coming to the realisation,
that the team comes first.
Again, I'm so sorry, guys.
We forgave you right when you walked in the door.
The Geminis are going to be
the toughest competition that we've ever had.
But we can take it, now that we have all ten dancers.
-You guys ready?
-Let's do it.
One, two, three.
ALL: The Next Step!
It was a long ride to get here, but now we can compete for real.
# We are gonna show the world
# Everything we're made of
# We're gonna tear the roof off this place
# Stand up! #
I've been worried about Michelle since she left the hospital,
so I can't wait to hear how she's doing.
-Hey, how are you feeling?
I'm feeling so much better.
I've gotten a lot of rest and a lot of fluids
and I'm ready to go for that ten-person dance.
Well, let's just see how you feel first.
I'm fine. I'm feeling good.
Michelle pushed herself way too far and she might do it again.
She needs to rest.
Besides, with Alfie we already have ten dancers.
Look, I just don't want to take any chances or make any promises.
-I understand, I'm just saying I'm fine and...
..I'm good to go but it's up to you.
Riley's making the best decision that she can as studio head
but she's wrong. I need to find a way to change her mind.
Is something wrong, because you don't seem like yourself?
I think I know you pretty well by now.
Is it something with your dad?
No, really. It's nothing.
LaTroy, tell me the truth.
All right. We need to talk.
I don't think we should be together any more.
You're dumping me?
You're seriously dumping me right before the finals?
Is this some kind of joke?
I know it's not convenient.
You said you loved me.
Three days in the books.
Welcome to the final day at the
Absolute Dance Regionals Competition.
The winner will be crowned later today.
-It's the Gemini Dance Studio up against The Next Step.
This Gemini team has really come out of nowhere.
Not only did they win every round here,
but they also won two of the three qualifiers
leading up to the competition.
And honestly speaking,
everyone here cannot wait to see what they bring to the table.
The whole dance season has been building up to this.
Yeah. It's been a crazy dance season.
And you've been a huge part of that.
You should be so proud of yourself for everything you've accomplished.
Aw, thank you.
-So how are you doing?
I'm probably ten times more stressed
than I was when I was dancing but the worst
part is that there's nothing I can do about it.
Don't sweat it, Riley. We can take these clowns.
Yeah. You know what we say in times like these.
-BOTH: Don't even worry about it!
-What are you laughing about?
-Why don't you guys go round everyone up.
OK. Got it.
So, your star is back.
The one you're afraid we're going to steal.
When we heard he bailed, we were glad he wasn't on our team!
We don't like quitters.
The Next Step doesn't quit, OK?
And you'll see that today.
Just be prepared for a battle.
We haven't lost yet.
And we don't expect that to change today.
Do you want to talk about whatever's going on?
I'm just all...
..messed up right now.
Just what with all these confusing emotions.
LaTroy looks ready freaked.
I have to let him know that he can do this.
He'll do amazing in the final dance.
LaTroy, You can talk to me.
You can tell me anything.
I broke up with Amy.
You know why, Sloane.
It took me so long to realise it.
It's you. I want to be with you, and
I don't want to be with anybody else.
I don't know what to say.
Just, please, tell me you feel the same way.
LaTroy, we need you backstage.
-I've got to...
I know that LaTroy and I said we loved each other and I do.
I love him but I just thought
he would wait until after regionals to break up with Amy.
I hope this doesn't affect her chance to win.
My make-up isn't running, is it?
No. It doesn't look like you've been crying at all.
Well, Tanisha, the Gemini Studio is about to take the stage.
I cannot wait to see this dance.
Once again, Tanisha, they have yet to suffer the sting of defeat.
This is Day Four and something tells me that they don't have a loss
anywhere in their sights.
-Michelle, what you doing here?
I'm here to dance and I'm not going to take no for an answer.
I can't let you dance, Michelle.
Why not? The doctors have cleared me to dance.
No, that's not the issue. Alfie came back. We already have ten dancers.
Seeing all those dancers, the pure shock value of all those twins,
that has me worried.
Please, Riley. I have worked so hard for this.
I know but if I put 11 dancers on that stage we get disqualified.
If I put you on the dance then I have to take an A-trouper off.
I don't care if we have 100 dancers.
I need to be one of those ten on stage.
You and I both know that I'm one of the best dancers on A-Troupe,
if not the best.
You mean to tell me that you're not going to put your best dancer out
there for the regionals final?
Look, Michelle. Even if I agree with you, it's too late.
It's not too late.
You and I would do what ever it takes to this team to win.
Putting me out there on that stage means we're going to have a better
chance of winning and you know that.
I can't deny that Michelle's right.
Start warming up.
Putting Michelle in the dance gives us the best chance at winning.
But that just means I have to do something awful.
Slowing things down.
Oh, look at the move right in the middle of the floor.
The suspensions and the one arm!
APPLAUSE AND CHEERING
Um, Michelle's back and she's going to be dancing.
So if Michelle's dancing, that means that one of us isn't.
Who's out? Who is not dancing?
I want to give us our best chances of winning out there, so,
I hate that I have to choose...
But to win I need to have the ten most focused dancers compete.
Amanda, I'm sorry, but you won't be dancing in the final routine.
Riley, don't do this.
Do not take me out of that dance.
This isn't happening.
I can't believe Riley's pulling me from this dance
after everything I've done for this team.
You've been so distracted lately.
I don't know where you've been but you have not been here.
You want to know what I've been doing?
I've been deciding whether or not
whether I should go on a world tour with Gisele.
You see. That's exactly what I'm talking about. How could you even
think about abandoning the team at a time like this?
What are you all doing standing here? Go warm up.
Riley, I turned it down.
I chose the team.
I'm sorry, Amanda.
It's true what they say. One choice can change everything.
I stayed here to dance with my team.
Riley was supposed to be my friend.
How could she do this to me?
I don't know how she can do this to you, either.
But, look. If you don't want me to dance, I won't.
Noah, don't be stupid.
You have to dance.
I still want you to win regionals.
Even though I would hate to give Riley the satisfaction.
Will you at least come watch?
No, I can't.
I can't even stand the thought.
Sorry, guys, but Noah, we have to go.
I love you and we're going to get through this.
-So, you coming?
-Yeah. Let's go.
I feel more betrayed than I've ever felt in my entire life.
The Next Step is supposed to be my family.
Well, you can't wave a stick without hitting the highs and lows
The Next Step has endured throughout the course of this competition
but here they are, getting set to take the stage in the finals.
Well, can you answer this, Tanisha Scott?
What does The Next Step have in the gas tank?
Well, let's see.
I'm excited to see what's going to happen.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
MUSIC: Ain't No Number Two by The Next Step
I hate that I have to dance with LaTroy right now.
I'm channelling all my hurt and anger into this performance.
I pushed myself this year, and it was worth it.
I'm so happy to be up here dancing.
Being on the stage with my friends.
I know I made the right choice.
To tell the truth, they're killing it
and they're a team.
You can tell.
I'm really proud to dance with my team,
but it just isn't the same without Amanda.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
And what a finish. The Next Step has brought it all to the floor in this,
the final day of competition
at the Absolute Dance regionals competition.
-Chuck, I definitely don't envy the judges.
This is going to be an extremely tough call.
And we're about to come down with that decision in just moments.
The Next Step, The Geminis.
It's all down to this one moment.
TANNOY: And the winner of the
Absolute Dance Regionals Competition is...
This can't be real.
-don't know what to say.
The Next Step lost and on my watch.
I can't believe this is happening.
I came all the way back to help the team win.
I'm so disappointed.
I gave it my all,
but it wasn't enough.
'Can you believe it?
'The Geminis sweeping every single category this week.'
and coming out of nowhere
to win regionals, Tanisha.
It's true, this team have definitely
come from the trenches and come out on top.
The Geminis have toppled the reigning international champions.
The Next Step
I've learned so much from you, Michelle.
Thanks, Piper, I've learned a lot from you, too.
And the funny thing is that I cannot wait to get back in the studio and
I want to do it all over again.
I know exactly how you feel.
Right now, we're broken
but I'm going to be there to help
everyone pick up the pieces.
Hey. You OK?
I could have danced better if I didn't feel the way I do.
I know what you mean.
Heartbreak is the worst.
Tell me about it.
If you ever need anything, I'm here for you.
Thanks. It means a lot.
This has been a hard day.
But there's nowhere to go from here but up.
All right, Sloane. I put all my feelings out there.
Now you know exactly how I feel about you.
So, tell me the truth.
The truth is...
I've loved you my whole life and I couldn't stop now if I tried.
LaTroy and I were always meant to be together.
I'm glad he finally figured it out.
Let's go and like, get an ice cream or something. Cool?
Hey, Amanda. It's me again.
We really missed you in that dance.
Just give me a call when you get this.
I haven't been able to get hold of Amanda for a while.
I really hope she's OK.
What you smiling at, man?
We just lost.
Or did we?
-What do you mean?
-It's all going to work out.
I don't know how I know but I do.
Something's up. I'm vibeing it.
Whatever, man. Let's get out of here.
I feel really bad.
Hey, you did everything you could.
But it wasn't enough.
You've always got next year. You're not giving up already, are you?
But I wanted it so bad.
I mean, I feel like I had to prove myself.
Riley, everyone who comes to regionals wants it so bad.
Well, if that's true, then I should be thanking myself.
Because even despite everything that's happened,
I still feel like the luckiest girl.
Oh, you feel like the luckiest girl?
Since I've been studio head,
I've had to make a lot of tough decisions, and you know what?
I've made some mistakes along the way,
but that's a part of growing up, I think.
Just figuring it all out.
The one big lesson I have learnt is that I love James...
Sorry to interrupt what's going on here.
You're the one for me.
Whoa! No, no, no, no.
-We're too young for this.
-No, no, I know, Riley.
This is a promise ring.
I just... I hope I can actually get you a really nice ring
when I ask you to marry me one day.
-This is just a promise.
It's that one there, isn't it?
I love you so much, James.
# We're gonna show the world
# Everything we're made of
# We're gonna tear the roof off this place
# You can never fade us out
# Don't even ask the DJ
# Everybody knows we own this sound... #
Now that Alfie is back, the team is able to compete in the regionals final. But when Michelle shows up ready to dance, Riley has to make a heartbreaking decision and sideline one of the dancers who was about to compete. LaTroy makes a decision he has been dreading. With several team members broken-hearted, The Next Step leaves it all on the floor in the final.
